Young zebra finches in a Texas laboratory are tweeting out birdsong which they have never heard after scientists implanted false memories into their brains.

In the same way children learn to speak by absorbing language used by their parents, baby finches pick up birdsong by mimicking their fathers and learning it over time.

But by manipulating electrical activity in the brain, University of Texas experts  learned how to skip this lengthy process and lodge the tune in the finch's mind.

The scientists believe the breakthrough could have wide-ranging applications, including treating people struggling with autism or speech disorders.
